Ash Wednesday Prayer for 2014

by Christine Sine

My prayer for Ash Wednesday this year comes out of my own deep desire to be transformed and to see something new of God’s image emerge in my life

Also check out this short meditation which Odyssey Networks produced last year as an adaption from one of my Ash Wednesday prayers. It appears on their mobile app Call On Faith and I thought that some of you might appreciate it.

Putting prayers like this to music with photos is a practice that I find very faith building. Perhaps it is a practice you would like to enter into during this Lenten season.

This is a wonderful prayer. I am offering the imposition of ashes at a thrift shop tomorrow. Unfortunately I am not able to purchase Lenten cards in time. Would I be able to hand out this prayer with your permission?

Karen please feel free to use it.

Many people received ashes at the thrift store yesterday. They were grateful for your prayer that I handed out to them. Thanks, again!

Wonderful to hear that Karen – what a great idea to do the service in the Thrift store rather than in a church.
